According to the consultation, in the last three years there has been a sustained increase in the monthly frequency of remittances. “This shows not only the normalization of their relatives abroad, but also the dependence of families on the help of migrants,” says Consultores 21.

On average, the amount of remittances received by families in July was 59 dollars. But the figure varies by region. In the capital region, an average of 114 dollars in remittances per family nucleus. In Guayana, the average remittances received per family was 92 dollars, 79 dollars in the central region, 61 dollars in the east, 59 dollars in the plains, 58 dollars in the central west, 57 dollars in the Andes and 38 dollars in the state Zulia.


According to the calculations of Consultores 21, until June 2022 between 15% and 20% of Venezuelans left the country in the context of the socioeconomic crisis unleashed in the last decade, which represents a net figure that is between 5,062,433 and 6,540,195 people.
